Creation's Store - Poem by David Taylor

I have no new word to utter.
No magic philosophical mutter.
Not anything to say
that was not said another day.
The poets, authors, ancient scribes
have commented on every side.
About life and death
about the earth, the heavens
and all that might be left.
I have no sublime surprise
to give this reader new uplifting highs.
But one thing I did realise.
Creation never stays the same
this page today is a whole new game.
And what ever went before
creation has much more in store.

    Every day a new beginning, right David? This poem conveys alot of hope something that many of us need now or at one time or another. You write and express emotion so well, but than, I've probably said that to you before..marci.xo (Report) Reply

    You and Ralph are on the same page. Waldo Emerson that is. 'We must trust in the perfection of the creation so far as to believe that whatever curiosity the oder of things has awakened in our minds, the order of things can satisfy' No bad company to be in.
